Episode 31.


I did a home pregnancy test a month ago and it was positive. I should be excited about the pregnancy because Zyair and I have been waiting for this for such a long time but I am sort of confused and unhappy because I am not sure who the father of this baby is. I have been having unprotected sex with both Zyair and the Bishop.

I haven’t told anyone yet that I am pregnant. I needed some time to digest it all. The Bishop and I are meeting this evening. I plan on telling him first before I break the news to Zyair. Over the last one month there have been times that I have been tempted to tell Zyair about the baby but I stop myself all the time.

I am scared to raise Zyair’s hope. Because what if the baby is not his?

It’s been so easy to hide this pregnancy because I am fortunate enough to be one of those women who don’t experience morning sickness. The only evidence of the pregnancy is my appetite which has increased and I am slowly gaining weight. Sometimes I feel like I have an appetite for two people.

I have laid my head down to go to sleep on my desk when Pastor Ruth walks up to me.
“Why are you sleeping? You think this is your bedroom? Don’t you have things to do?”
I look up at her and take a deep breath, “Good morning Pastor Ruth.”
“And what’s good about this morning?”
“Is anything the matter?”
“What do you think?”
This woman has been giving me a nasty attitude the last for a couple of weeks and I have just been ignoring her. But if she continues like this, God knows I will put her in her place. It’s not my fault that her marriage is falling apart.

“Bishop is not in his office at the moment.”
“I know he isn’t. I have a meeting with the pastor’s wives. Get up and set up the place for me before they start arriving.”
“You know I am not an office orderly?”
“What is that supposed to mean?”
“I will not set up anything for you.”
She laughs,” Oh! Now you even have the guts to talk to me like that? You think you are special just because you are fucking my husband?”
“It hurts you right? It hurts that he doesn’t want you anymore,” I laugh. “I don’t blame you though, I would be frustrated if my husband stopped touching me and paying attention to me.”
“Oh he says he doesn’t touch me? Are you that naive that you would believe such lies? That man is my husband, we sleep in the same bed and we have sex almost all the time.”
“Lies. All lies.”
“And no matter how much you try, you will never be his wife. You will always be the other woman. The one he hides and fucks behind everyone’s back. I watched this movie before and I know how it ends. Bishop will find someone sexier and he will dump you. You are not his first side-piece nor will you be the last. But I will always be his wife and no matter how much he strays, that man knows his way back home.”

Her words sting so I decide not to respond to her. There’s some truth in what she’s saying, Sanna told me not to get attached but I couldn’t help it, this man has been so good to me he even bought me a car and I am back in school.
“Cat got your tongue?” she says. “Anyway I will be in my husband’s office in case anyone needs me.”

I watch her walk into the office and slam the door behind her back. If it were up to me this woman would be out of Bishop’s life I wonder why he doesn’t divorce her. For a Bishop’s wife, Pastor Ruth is too bitter.

I work steadily until lunch time then I head out to the cafeteria to pick up some lunch. Pastor Ruth’s meeting is still ongoing. I told her I am not coming back to the office this afternoon, I asked Bishop for the afternoon off so I can go and see a doctor.
I eat my chicken wings and fries on my way to the hospital. An hour and a half later, I get to the hospital and after a quick retouch of my makeup, I step out of the car and head straight to the doctor’s office.

In the doctor’s office, I lie down on the table and pull my top up. When the ultrasound technician walks in, he squirts some cold liquid on my tummy before rubbing the scanner on it.

The tiny image of a baby appears on the screen almost immediately and I can hear it’s heart thumping. Zyair would be excited to witness this moment with me, I definitely need to tell him tonight.

Once he is done, the doctor informs me that the pregnancy is three months old and that everything is okay with the baby.
“Thank you doctor.”
“Always take your prenatal vitamins and eat a lot of proteins,” he says.
“Okay, I will do that.”
After he gives me the date for the next appointment. I leave the hospital and drive straight home to freshen up and prepare food for Zyair. Zyair thinks I am meeting Sanna tonight when I will be with the Bishop.

It’s almost 7 P.M when I arrive at Bishop’s apartment. Tonight, We’re going to order out and watch some movies. I just want to relax.
“Baby girl!” He exclaims when he sees me.
“Daddy! Daddy!”
“How are you?”
“I am fine, you?”
“I am fine too,” he stares at me briefly before he says, ” is it just me or you have gained?”
“I don’t know, maybe I have.”
“You definitely have.”
“You don’t like how I look?”
“I love how you look.”
“Thank you.”

I take off my shoes and sit next to him.
“How was work today?”
“Your wife came over, she had a meeting with the pastor’s wives.”
“Ya, she said some mean things to me.”
“Just avoid her, you want some wine?”
“Okay. What do you want to do tonight?”
“There’s something I want to talk to you about.”
“Is it something serious?”
“Okay, I am all ears.”
“I am pregnant.”
“Three months now, I found out some time back but I went to the hospital today and they confirmed it.”
“Congratulations. Your husband is obviously over the moon with the news.”
“I haven’t told him yet.”
“I am not sure who the father is between you and him.”
“It’s his,” he says. Taking a sip from his bottle of beer. ” There’s no question about it.”
“You and I have been having unprotected sex too.”
“And so? You are a married woman Tia and I am a married man, this child belongs to your husband. It’s him you should be breaking this news to and not me.”
“But I thought…”
“You thought wrong,” he finishes the sentence for me. “And I think you should leave.”
“I just got here.”
“I just realized I have things to attend to.”
“Ya,” he stands up and grabs my bag and shoes.
“I am happy for you and your husband. Congratulations are in order.”
He walks me to the door, hands me my bag and shoes. As soon as I walk out, he slams the door behind my back.
I stare at the door for a minute, unable to walk back to my car, wondering what just happened. I thought he would be thrilled with the idea of us having a child together.
